Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an A+ in this area. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the number of hours nurses are with patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this facility a score of A- for our short-term care grade. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor dings are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our final category is long-term care, where we gave this facility a grade of C in this area. Our long-term care scores are critical for patients looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.729 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
